Why use HubSpot's Campaign tool?

For a truly successful campaign, you need alignment across teams and centralised collaboration with one concurrent message running throughout the customer journey. HubSpot’s Campaign tool provides built-in features like tasks, comments and performance analytics.

Engaging your audience through aligned campaigns ensures you speak with one powerful voice, propelling your customer along their journey, reducing friction, and delivering results on the goals that matter most.

Good news – HubSpot Campaigns are really easy to create!
